HI
PART SECOND
There's but a brief breath now for me, at most. . . . Could you  move me along  that I may glimpse Still how the battle's going ?
HARDINGE
Ay, Sir John  A few yards higher up, where we can see.
He is borne in the blanket a little way onward, and lifted so that he can view the valley and the action.
MOORE (brightly) They seem to be advancing.    Yes, it is so !
Enter SIR JOHN HOPE.
Ah, Hope !  I am doing badly here enough ; But they are doing rarely well out there.
(Presses Hope's hand.)
Don't leave ! my speech may flag with this fierce pain, But you can talk to me.  Are the French foiled ?
HOPE My dear friend, they are borne back steadily.
MOORE (his voice weakening)
I hope that England  will be satisfied  I hope my native land  will do me justice ! . . . I shall be blamed for sending Craufurd off Along the Orense road.    But had I not, Bonaparte would have headed us that way. . . .
HOPE
O would that Soult had but accepted fight By Lugo town !    We should have crushed him there*
